Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Big One for the Ministry...

Hi, all!

It's finally Friday!!  And you know what that means - it's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Don't worry - you've got until Sunday midnight to link up, and it doesn't have to be a finish - just something you're excited about accomplishing!!  So let's get started!


*&*&*&*&*&*&*


This year marks the ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's devastating landfall in New Orleans, and our high school mission team is once again returning there to do mission work, leaving this Saturday morning.  They have gone down there many times over the years, working with the residents of St. Bernard Parish in their recovery efforts.


These four boxes hold forty-five quilts made by the members of quilt ministry and are going with the mission team to New Orleans this weekend to be distributed to people in need there!


There are too many of them to show individually, but here are a couple of montages to give you an idea of what we are sending.  Many of the tops were donated, or made from donated orphan blocks and fabric.  So many hands went into the making of these quilts - and they will be a great comfort to people in need of a quilty hug!  If you see something you donated, or for that matter, if you've ever made a donation to the quilt ministry, give yourself a big whoop whoop!  You done good!!

So - - - can the folks at the quilt ministry get a whoop whoop?

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

And now it's your turn!

What are you whooping about this week?


What's got you dancing a little happy dance?

Share - we want to dance right along with you -
Because it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight - 

Hope to see you there!

PS Remember to hop over to Zenia Rene's "WHOOMP There IT Is" linky party and join in the fun!

Hugs!

Sarah

  5. Sarah, what an awesome gift you all are sending to New Orleans. The gift of a quilt says so much... it gives warmth, comfort and says that the person is cared for... that someone cared and loved and made this for them.

Years ago, I wanted to go down there and help out with Habitat's efforts, but it just never happened. Here's hoping the mission team has a great trip. Folks are going to be so excited to get these wonderful quilts. Kudos!!

  24. That's amazing that you guys are able to help other so much! I'm from New Orleans but was living here in Houston when it happened. My family was displaced and had to stay with me for a couple months. It was rough. I actually quit my job and moved back home that November to them out and rebuilt the flooded house. It was crazy for a long time with FEMA trailers and limited resources (stores with crazy short hours and almost no restaurants open). Very surreal when you have to live like that...felt kind of like a war zone. But eventually with the help of others things get better. My mom's area is doing well, as are the touristy areas, but there are still so many people in need. Glad you guys stepped up! Enjoy your trip!
